Default Monster Figure Case

So I went down to GW today to ask a few things and they were talking about this new case that is going to be released at christmas for a limited time.

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/co...?aId=13600033a

I am somewhat confused on it. I mean it seems kind of cool and to an extent a good investment but I am really not sold on the way the foam is layed out. Has anyone else seen/thought about this new carrying case for larger figures?

Looks very suited for its purpose, you remove the foam you need to fit your model in the case and its huge enough to fit a stompa in, no special tools required the foam just pulls away.

I must admit, it is a good idea. Just wish that those cases were made out of metal rather than the crappy plastic they have now.

But as I said before, cases that can hold really big models comfortably are a good idea.

I don't have a stompa, or a monolith... I took the advice of another poster in an earlier thread on this and went to Maplin - got a similar case, in aluminium, for carrying my tanks. It takes three Land Raiders and two Rhinos without difficulty and uses the same foam setup as that monster case.

Costs 30 as well...

http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?...No=225744#spec
it has the same style foam inserts as the mega case, again though not as big ,ideal for tanks and such though.

I think if you take the foam out carefully enough, its a pretty good deal for large models... that said, looking around, theres plenty of decent enough alternatives for cheaper.

Transport for 1 Stompa only? For 50 its a rip... 2 baneblades, 8 dragons, or probably 2 monoliths, its a little better... but having seen how stuffs been packed in the provided pictures, I'd be worried about the security of them.

looking at the dimensions i'd say it's unlikely

i'd say GW designed it to carry models that are roughly "cube-shaped" such as the stompa and the FW bloodthirster

i recon you might just squeeze a warhound in but a thunderhawk is too big

I'm not sure of the exact dimensions, but I think that a thunderhawk is smaller then a Stompa, so probably...

This looks liek a rip off, the box is strong but the foam is still the same poor quality as its always been. You will be just as well off putting a load of tissue paper in there

Please listen to my PODCAST
